“Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant”. ~ Patricia G. Ramsey, Contemporary American educational psychologist

Found these friendly kids playing in Magsaysay Park and gamely posed for me

(Wikipedia) “Luksong tinik” (jumping over thorns) is a popular traditional game in the Philippines, played by two teams with equal numbers of players. It originated in Cabanatuan City, played by two teams with equal numbers of players.  The game involves players sitting on the ground with other players jumping over parts of their body.
